New Fish - Corys

We added four more fish to our tank... slowly, we'll have it fully stocked. The four new guys are cute little Corydoras (C.trilineatus). They are little catfish-like schooling dudes that come from peru and ecuador. Here's what one looks like:

Cory close up

The pet store had them incorrectly labeled as Corydoras Julli, but they are apparently commonly mislabled this way. When we first put them in, for the first few days, all they did was swim up and down and up and down along the right side of the tank, like a dog chasing its tail. They were acting all crazy.

They've calmed down a bit now, and spend most of their time looking for food along the bottom, or on the driftwood, or on plants.

They scurry about very cutely. And when they get spooked (which happens easily, sensitive little dudes), they kinda play dead.. they just go real still along the bottom of the tank and wait it out for a bit. kinda neat i guess.

all four corys hanging out

Anyway, for those of you who are actually nice enough to have read this far, i've got a little treat for you, i think. Assuming it works, I've posted a video of me feeding our tetras. They zip and zoop like crazies when there's food in the water... its pretty cool. Check it out.
